New Trails for Otay

On Thursday, March 14, 2017, County Parks coordinated a public workshop to gather input on a new trail plan for Otay Valley. About 70 people attended the event including local residents, business owners, partner organizations and County staff.

Agencies present included County Parks, County Supervisor Greg Cox, City of San Diego, City of Chula Vista, Otay Water District, U.S. Border Patrol, California Fish and Wildlife, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, and the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management.   

Working together, the overarching goal is to create a coordinated and sustainable trail system that can enhance recreation and increase trail connections to Otay Ranch Preserve and other public lands – balancing that with the protection of sensitive environmental resources.

Reception was positive. Highlights will be posted here, once summarized, along with maps and other graphics. In the meantime, view the presentation, project fact sheet and event summary. A wealth of helpful information can also be found in the posterboards.
